The requirement for the first award is to list 10 facts about myself :-) and reward it to 6 favorite blogs.
Ok, so here it goes!
1- I am a very shy person and having a social life has always been a challenge for me.
2-Just like Choc Chip Uru said, I am terrified of spiders and bugs in general, when I was a kid I used to scream like crazy at the sight of one but I learned to suppress the screams in order to not scare my parents to death!
3- Living in the country has always been a platonic dream of mine but it will continue to be just a dream, (refer to fact number 2)
4- I have difficulty sticking to just one activity for a long period of time, unless I am forced to finish what I've started! (Example: school)
5- I've worked in an animal hospital for 8 years, first job I ever got and have managed to keep it, there's still a glimpse of consistency in me!
6- I believe in the supernatural: angels, fairies, ghosts, you name it.
7- This one might be related to the previous fact but it deserves a spot for itself. I believe in dreams, I always look for hidden messages in everything I dream and what other people dream too! Because I find it so hard to meditate, I believe that if any beings (preferably good ones) want to communicate a message to me, it will be through a dream which is the only time my mind rests.
8-I care about the environment and I try to do my part by taking public transportation, recycling, doing manual laundry and line drying (this needs a post of its own), using reusable bottles, etc.
9- I absolutely love dancing, when I was a kid I wanted to be a choreographer (and a singer, visual artist, architect, model, etc.) but life drove me through different roads.
10- English is my second language, as you may or may not notice. I was born in Argentina but I gained my independence in the US so even though I have fond memories of my childhood in the South American country, I can only feel I belong in the States :)
The second award I received from her is The Sunshine Award.
